'21-'22 Wrap-Around Services VISTA
As the largest network of food banks in Pierce County, Nourish has provided a lifeline of support to its clients for more than forty years. (Learn more at Now we need the help of a talented AmeriCorps member to set us up to offer wraparound supports in addition to food. The goal of integrating wrap-around services within traditional food pantries is simple: to end hunger in a community and to get each Customer and family/individual one step closer to self-sufficiency. The result is a food pantry that becomes the center of a Customer’s social community. This is critically important because many people who go to food pantries don’t have reliable transportation. Traveling to individual places to apply to different programs is difficult for them. With your help, we can set up a process where a caseworker can sit down with families to determine what types of services they are eligible to receive, such as: SNAP, WIC, Day care and childcare, and more.
